this year in 2012. they did that today. amazing. joining us is steve clemmons. he writes at the washington note and atlantic magazine. steve is also a former policy adviser for new mexico senator jeff bingaman. thank you for being here. >> great to be with you rachel. >> am i being naive to think this was going to pass? >> a lot of people thought it was going to pass. of all the treaties, this would be the easiest to pass. there were other treaties pending. this is about people in need and it didn't. this is a branch of the gop that did you want represent all republicans, but it's the obnoxious nationalist wing that really resents any international deal making. there's a lot of worry not just about people with disabilities, but all the other treaties that position the united states and show that it can be the primary sculptor of global affairs, and we're defecting from that as of today's vote. >> so 126 countries ratifying this, but us, not ratifying it. particularly when it's modeled on our law. that takes us out of a global leadership role? >> it leaves a void that the united states is w

gone crazy. joining us now is steve kornacki from salon.com, host of "the cycle." good to have you i don't here. >> great to be here. >> some republican-controlled states, including ohio and virginia are talking about making their state vote for president the same way they vote for congress and the legislature. which right now is set up in a way that dramatically favors republicans, no matter how people vote. is it feasible that they could do this? >> it is feasible, sure, because they have the power. we're talking about states here where you control where the republican party controls the governorship and controls both houses of the legislature. so they have the power to do it. the significance, i literally have some back of the envelope calculations. >> that's an actual envelope? >> with some calculations on it. i think it's worth pointing out. you have four statious mentioned, pennsylvania, virginia, michigan, ohio. right now this year in the 2012 election, the electoral vote count from those four states was 61-0, obama. he won all four states. if you get a vote for every congress

. [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things like what the market is doing and being ready no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. >>> are we going to go over the fiscal cliff? >> you know, i remain optimistic that there are enough people of good will in this town that recognize our economy will be much better off, american families will be much better off if we get this done. the most important thing we can do is make sure the middle class taxes do not go up on january 1st. and i'm pretty confident that republicans would not hold middle class taxes hostage to try to protect tax cuts for high-income individuals. >> there is big news tonight out of washington where speaker john boehner and obama are talking. thi

that this was a conservative victory, that there has been this failure. i just got a note about congressman steve latourette from ohio saying tonight we're not going to be here until after christmas, maybe we don't come back at all this year. it's unbelievable. this is horrible. i'm angry. i'm sad for my friend the speaker. i'm sorry for the country." it seems like there's a schism going on within the conference. is speaker -- is john boehner's speakership at risk? >> we don't know. i would say that probably not. that what you often see is when you have moments like this the real conservatives like to gloat. but what you do see is a real problem in him being able to get together a coalition that can deal with this very large problem that's on the horizon, this big drop-off. we won't say the word you don't like. but here's one thing that i find very fascinating. i spoke to some members who are walking out of there. and they said, well, if this was really the last possible deal we could get, maybe we would have supported it. but they did not want to go along with this sort of kabuki theater, if you will, this
